Voting is a right. Do not vote if you do not want to vote. It is not a requirement and those not voting do not need to be shamed for it.

Voting is a right, not a responsibility.

It seems that many misplace and mistake right with responsibility when it comes to voting. With so much of the narrative pushing people to vote and shaming those that have not registered, the concept of voting has taken a negative messaging turn.

The toxicity and force placed into telling people to vote has backed fired for many years and in many elections. Taking a more engaging, respectful approach might bring more people to the table, while allowing others to feel less attacked.

A quote graphic with the voting is a right episode on the right side and a quote on the left side over a purple background that reads: “Voting is a right and if you do not want to exercise that right, who am I or who is anyone to tell you that you are wrong."
“Voting is a right and if you do not want to exercise that right, who am I or who is anyone to tell you that you are wrong.”

When it comes to voting, we all have experienced a great deal of force in telling us to vote. It has even carried over to a pressure and border line toxic message style that adds a narrative saying it is a requirement, and something you have to do.

Then, even adding a negative angle of saying you are irresponsible or a bad person if you do not vote. Voting is a right and voting is your choice.

While, I wish everyone would vote and be involved, it is not my place or anyone else’s place to tell you that you have to.

Invite, share and engage someone with the reasons why you think they should vote over pressuring, pushing and coming off with an arrogant tone telling people they need to.

“Voting is a right and if you do not want to exercise that right, who am I or who is anyone to tell you that you are wrong.”

While I wish people were involved in their government, it is not respectful for me to force that wish on anyone. And it is strange how many of the individuals that are so aggressive with the idea of getting people to vote, screaming to get out the vote or pushing to rock the vote, often times seem more concerned with getting that person to vote for their candidate.

Getting right to the point…

In the end, I believe if we invite, share, explain and engage what voting can do, why people should consider voting and moving away from the attacks, insults and belittling, it may draw that many more people to get involved and vote.

Voting is a right. Do not vote if you do not want to vote. It is not a requirement and those not voting do not need to be shamed for it. A Wait What Really OK brand messaging podcast and stewarding blog hosted by FSG Messaging and Optics‘ Loren Weisman.
